Saving our coastlines 4.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Searching for a lovely romantic spot on sandy shores, far from the maddening crowd? Your search has just been made harder by a complex process called erosion. This is not the physical process of sand being eroded, although that is the unfortunate outcome. What is pertinent here is an erosion of legislation. Beaches, the outpouring of longing for stasis between land, rivers and oceans, are the epitome of change. Change has never been faster than today, with about half of our countrys coastline under threat of disappearing forever. Chipping away at the rock of our environmental legislation, are small tweaks, amendments that slipped past public scrutiny; one affecting rivers, another affecting industry, a third affecting coastlines. No one could see what it was all adding up to, perhaps not the amenders themselves. Indias disappearing beaches reveal the cumulative impact of complex processes involving dams on rivers, construction and mining along the coast, falling groundwater levels and impacts of climate ...

GPS a must for sand trucks, boats:DC 24.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Installation of GPS is mandatory for trucks and boats used for sand mining, Deputy Commissioner Sasikumar Senthil said. Chairing the sand monitoring committee meet here at the DCs office, he said that those boats which are used for sand mining should be painted in a particular colour depending on the rivers.

Inland waterway terminal at Haldia gets green nod 24.11.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The proposed Inland Waterways terminal at Haldia, West Bengal, has been accorded Coastal Regulatory Zone (CRZ) clearance subject to specific conditions regarding protection of Gangetic dolphins and marine biodiversity. The proposed Haldia terminal on National Waterways-1 (NW- 1) will facilitate the bulk transportation of material and products through barges. The final CRZ clearance for the project came nearly six months after the Ministry of Environment and Forests' Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) on Infrastructure Development and Coastal Regulation Zone recommended it for clearance on May 11. The Rs 516 crore project partially falls under the CRZ-IB, CRZ-II and CRZ-IVB zone and according to the EAC, the terminal's construction will have impacts on aquatic flora and water quality. In its clearance, the environment ministry has directed that 2% of the project cost or 10.32 crore has to be spent for marine and coastal biodiversity protection and conservation measures by the Inland Waterways Authority of ...

Inter-state transportation of sand banned: DC 14.11.2017 Deccan Herald - District
Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner Sasikanth Senthil said that inter-state transportation of sand from Dakshina Kannada district is prohibited. Speaking to reporters here, he said that the district-level committee will decide on banning inter-district transportation of sand depending on the availability of sand in the district. "All the boats engaged in removal of sand in CRZ area will be fit with GPS and colour code within 15 days. This will help to identify the boats that are not authorised to remove sand. All the unauthorised boats engaged in removal of sand from sand bars in CRZ areas will be seized once the drive to instal GPS and colour code is complete," Senthil said.
